Bishop's Easter Message

RESURRECTION AND THE AMAZING CHANGES!
Easter, commemorating the Resurrection of Jesus, is the oldest and most important festival of the Christian Church, and held (in the Latin Church) between 21 March and 25 April, on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the northern spring equinox.
One might ask: how did 12 followers of Jesus - fishermen, tax collectors, and other ordinary people multiply to such an extent that 2000 years later, one out of every three people on the planet identifies as Christian? How is it that there are more books written about Jesus than about any other subject in the world, when he himself did not write anything down except, of course, something on the ground? Jesus never composed a song, but there is more music about him than any other subject. Jesus never drew any pictures or did any sculpture, but more art has been made about Jesus than any other subject in history.   Read More....

History of the Diocese

The Present Ecclesiastical territory of Balasore, Comprising the 4 civil Districts : Bhadrak, Balasore, Mayurbhanj and Keonjhar of Orissa State, was under the Archdiocese of Calcutta until 1968.Though the origin of Christianity in this part of North East Orissa can be traced back to 1514 with a Portuguese settlement in Pippilli, Balasore got a resident Priest in the person of Fr. Sapport S.J. only in 1865. He had built a beautiful church (Lal Girja) in Balasore and had started a Foundling Home, which later was looked after by the Daughters of the Cross (DC). Fr Sapport S.J. was said to be the Pioneer Missionary of Balasore. In 1915, the Daughters of St. Joseph of Chembery had arrived and opened a Convent and a School in Balasore which was functioning until 1938.  Read More....
